Mission

To identify interagency (local, state, and federal) first responder research and development requirements and innovative technologies (fieldable in the next six months to five years) that address CBRNE detection, individual protection, collective protection, medical support, decontamination, communications systems, information technology, and miscellaneous operational support.

Roles and Functions

The primary functions of the S&T Committee are to develop and update the IAB S&T Requirements Matrix for inclusion in the SEL, coordinate IAB representation on federal requirements boards, record and collate requirements of individual SubGroups, report to SubGroups on federal requirement initiatives, provide an annual demographics report of the IAB membership, and assess innovative government- and industry-developed technologies.
